Omololu International School
During GMW2018, the 6th grade students of Omololu International School organised a series of events and activities specifically geared towards kindergarteners, to teach them good money spending and saving habits. Presentations and discussions with local entrepreneurs and researchers were organised. Other activities included presentations on the history of money, its uses, a field trip to explore other forms of currencies, presentations on cashless methods of payment, such as ‘Bitcoins’, and a money mentorship programme for the kindergarteners. Students used their gained knowledge to create a business plan and launch a school business called 'Fruitilicious'. The students learnt how to calculate profit and loss percentages, and they learnt about stock and inventory taking using their own business as an example. 50% of the profits earned were donated to a cancer patient in urgent need of assistance for surgery. About 20% of the profits were used to purchase piggy banks for kindergarteners for personal savings. The remaining 30% was used by the 6th graders, to establish a school savings club. All activities were organised by the students, with minimal guidance from the teachers.
